The CityPASS Winter Special Adds the Gift of Time to Major Savings and Line-Skipping, VIP Access

VICTOR, ID--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - CityPASS, the company that packages deeply discounted admission tickets to the top attractions in major North American destinations, is enhancing its money-saving, line-bypassing appeal with a Winter Special that dramatically lengthens CityPASS's traditional nine-day validity period.

Beginning Dec. 15, 2010, visitors purchasing CityPASS ticket booklets for New York City, Hollywood, Seattle, Boston and Philadelphia will have up to 76 days (until Feb. 28, 2011) to redeem the included attraction tickets (one use per individual ticket). Typically, once the first admission ticket in a booklet is redeemed, CityPASS holders have nine days in which to use the remaining attraction tickets. Winter Special, however, waives the nine-day rule, extending the usage period considerably.

In addition to giving travelers more time to enjoy their passes and the attractions, CityPASS saves buyers up to 50 percent off the cost of purchasing the included attraction tickets separately. CityPASS also saves time, allowing users to bypass most main-entrance ticket lines. And isn't that an extra-special perk on a cold, blustery winter day?

While visitors have always found CityPASS to be a great deal, the expanded Winter Special usage period also makes the pass attractive to locals who may be hosting friends or family members over the holidays -- not to mention looking for ways to entertain the kids over the winter break. The "valid all winter" concept encourages sightseers -- both out-of-towners and locals alike -- to take their time and explore a city at a leisurely pace.

CityPASS ticket booklets can be purchased online at or at any of the participating attractions. Winter Special booklets will be available beginning Dec. 15, 2010. There is no additional charge for the Winter Special. Note: Each attraction admission ticket included in a CityPASS booklet may be used for one admission to the respective attraction.
